that year coming up just a week later, israel invaded egypt. and they did it with the secret support of two major u.s. allies. france and england. it was a fight over control of the suez canal. the american president at that time, in 1956, was, of course, dwight eisenhower. republican. he was running for re-election against the democratic candidate that year, adlai stevenson. talk about an october surprise. that year it was eight days before election day. both candidates are forced to deal with an unexpected and genuine giant foreign policy crisis. >> on sunday the israeli government ordered total mobilization. on monday, their armed forces penetrated deeply into egypt and to the vicinity of the suez canal, nearly 100 miles away. and on tuesday, the british and french governments delivered a 12-hour ultimatum to israel and egypt, now followed up by armed attack against egypt. the united states was not consulted in any way about any phase of these actions. nor were we informed of them in advance. >> president eisenhower sounding kind of mad, right? the u.s. had not been informed about the at

in the relationship with egypt. this was a relationship that was not defined. they were worried about deterioration. this crisis enabled them to create a link where egypt now is part of a deal, one that is supposed to be an enforcer of a deal. stature hashis risen. host: have they had direct contact? guest: i am not aware of any because the president has avoided that. the israelis typically even in negotiations, day-to-day negotiations, the egyptians subcontractor these issues mostly to the intelligence services. hosni mubarak did that as well. it was not even a foreign ministry issued. i doubt there was any contact. if you look at what happened with hamas itself, when you look at the war itself, clearly, hamas paid a heavier price. israel's power is massive compared to hamas. hamas fired a lot of rocket, but if you look at the casualties, you have the five israelis dead and over 1000 injured total. what hamas wanted to call a balance of fear. civilians are terrified and they are sleeping in bunkers. israeli kids and families are also fearful. that did not translate obviously into an asset for them
and secretary secretary clinton who praised him for becoming part of the deal. not everyone in egypt is happy with president morsi. including him grack the power and putting himself above the judiciary among other things is protest in egypt about that not only for the muslim brotherhood but also against him and the muslim brotherhood of the party and now president morsi came out against the treaties with israel and hamas and saying that they need tod continue the islamic jihad movement in order to liberate all occupied territors of israel. things are remarkably calm 41 hours in the cease fire agreement. not one rocket in the past 24 hours and no attacks by the israelies. and the other thing indicating that things are moving forward and the israelies are viewing it tanks are packing exup moving north. they had moved the military down south against the gaza border to threaten a ground invasion ask that's why hamas many people say relented. there was no ground invasion an in israel things are returning to normal and reserve troops and most are part of the reserve. they are now returning to work
is thrown together in egypt. we know they are an important relationship with us. what do we do? what does the united states do? >> we have to recognize our limitations. we can only play on the margins. money changes everything. morsy is achilles' heel, that is really the economy. tourism is gone. it is very important to them. foreign investment has essentially dried up. we do spend well over a billion dollars in aid, primarily to the military every year. it filters through the economy. we should stop -- connell: we should stop doing that? >> if morsy pushes through the constitution, there is no reason to continue sending over billions of dollars a year. it also looks like under this constitution that morsy bought off the army. they get the money. they spend it anyway they want. this constitution, as i understand it, there will be no interference by the army with the government. he has a good chance of becoming this software powered dictator. connell: thank you, sir. i appreciate you coming on. corporations paying out these early dividends. they are trying to be the coming tax hikes. our q
of peace looking at the state of security forces in egypt, tunisia and libya. the arab spring are in the state of transition with the army, police and intelligence services playing different roles in each. this took place earlier this week in washington. it's two hours. >> good morning everyone. i'm steve heydemann for issues of the u.s. institute of peace, and we are delighted to see you all here at today's session on the securities sector reform in the arab world and some rsvp to me have been scared by the false rumor that it would be subjected to a political polling experience following the panel. that is not the case. so you do not need to worry about that. we are very pleased to have you here with us all this morning. i would like to stress that our topic this morning i think is both particularly important but also especially urgent. i do not think that it is an exaggeration to say what happens with the security sectors in the arab world and by security sectors i mean the police, the armed forces, and most of all of course the very substantial intelligence apparatus that
with us. who was the strongest player in that whole period? it was egypt. egypt was strong because egypt has peace with israel. the way to be strong is not by making war and unilateral declarations in the u.n. that have no meaning. the way to gain strength is to be a partner. >> is the cease-fire holding? >> cease-fire's holding so far. >> and you thank egypt's president mohamed morsi for that? >> he is so far now proving to be a constructive partner certainly as proven in this last operation. >> is he honoring the peace treaty with israel? >> i think there's peace between egypt and israel on a daily basis, yes. >> what about syria? what would you like to see the government of israel as far as syria is concerned? because it's intense what's going on right now. about 40,000 people have been killed over the past year and a half. >> it's horrible. it's a terrible tragedy. we, the people of israel, look at the people of syria with great respect, even awe standing up and risking and even giving their lives for freedom from the terrible bashar al assad regime. we want them to go. we've long wa
asking you about what's going on in egypt right now where muhammad morsi must feel pretty emboldened after playing such a crucial role in helping to broker a ceasefire between's reel and hamas. -- between israel and hamas. he is now sort of changing the law of the land, a power grab. how's this going to work out? is. >> well, i think he's revealed his true stripes. this is not democracy in action, this is a classic effort at one person, one vote, one time. he's, obviously, met resistance. let's hope it's successful. but i think it's just highly ironic that after dozens of commentators left and right in this country hailed muhammad morsi for his responsible conduct with respect to gaza and how he wasn't acting like an an extremist from the muslim brotherhood got what he, got what he needed from the ceasefire agreement and immediately began acting like an extremist from the muslim brotherhood. that should be what we focus on going forward. and for anybody who thinks the ceasefire in gaza is durable, all they had to do was read these headlines about what morsi did in egypt the day after
themselves is hamas getting more aggressive because it has greater support from egypt? do you see that correlation? >> i think one has to assume that. i think there are some other groups now to hamas' more extreme flank that are pressing it. that they're under some pressure. they're not offering enough resistance so to speak. i think that that is an operation. but no sovereign state can permit aggression against its citizens can permit rocket fire to continue. and one other thing should be pointed out. israel's response is the legal military response. hamas, every time they fire a missile at a populated area, that's a war crime. >> eliot: yep. also the point that certainly jerry, congressman you appreciate from your many travels to the middle east, the distances here are so small. from gaza, hamas can launch missiles that virtually hit all of the populated areas of israel. >> that's right. 15 seconds of warning to get undercover from a short-range missile. and frankly, israel has the obligation, the gove
because egypt's judiciary is full of remnants of the old regime and pro-mubarak-appointed judges. that's why according to him there's a slow transition to democracy. the other opponents of this decree are saying that president morsi is doing nothing than simply grabbing more power and reverting the country to dictatorship. human rights organizations have expressed great concern. there was, however, some indication the situation can be resolved politically. late last night president morsi met with the country's top judges, and they agreed to narrowly define the scope of how he uses this decree. but on the streets today, millions are expected, at least tens of thousands are expected to show up in tahrir square, a protest has been canceled to avoid any possible clashes. lynn? >> ayman live for us in cairo, thank you so much. >>> well, back here at home, new york governor andrew cuomo calls superstorm sandy more impactful than hurricane katrina. now both new york and new jersey are asking for a combined total of more than $71 billion in federal aid. in new york, the money would pay not onl

as the cia director. >>> in egypt today one man is dead after violent clashes with police. protesters are camping out in cairo's tahrir square. in a scene strikingly similar to what we saw in the revolution almost two years ago, the demonstrators are voicing their anger with president mohamed morsi after what some are calling an unprecedented power grab. cnn's reza sayah is joining us from cairo once again. reza, we're hearing about attacks against several muslim brotherhood offices in egypt. what do you know about that? >> reporter: according to the brotherhood spokesperson, two of their offices were attacked by anti-morsi protesters. the brotherhood says the protesters were carrying molotov cocktails, clubs and knives and destroyed and heavily damaged these offices. remember, muslim brotherhood had called for a one-million-man demonstration of their own today to rival the opposition's demonstrations. late last night they called it off to avoid violence. but in these two particular cities north of cairo, they didn't avoid violence. >> reza, we're also seeing and i want to show our vi
into play if there was a war with iran. it's been testing the new middle east, testing egypt's stance, forging new relations with rob morrison -- mohamed morsi, seeing how the arab world is post the arab spring. testing hezbollah and testing president obama, who interestingly immediately threw his lot in with israel. the president didn't say we want to call for cessation of hostilities and calm, he said we agree with israel's right to defend itself. israel's real enemy is iran. if remember netanyahu was at the u.n. holding up his bomb chart. he wasn't talking about hamas. he was talking about iran. that is israel's overriding threat. they have been able to deal with hamas pretty handedly. i've seen just yesterday israeli warships able to take out a single hamas militant who was sitting in a chair by the waterfront. so one warship fired a rocket. you could barely see the ship on the horizon and take out an individual militant. israel has been telephoning the houses of neighbors of hamas militants and telling them to get out of their houses. it has their phone numbers. so there is somet
